Glenrothes Distillery

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region

Speyside


Owner

The Edrington Group


Founded

1878 | James Stuart and Co.


Glenrothes is typically matured in sherry casks to give their distinctive rich flavour. The distillery sits only metres away from the Rothes cemetery where many of the tombstones have been blackened thanks to fungus. For a long time they released their single malts as vintages but have now referred back to age statements.
